Lewis Hamilton: Mercedes reveal engine setback ahead of Canadian Grand Prix

Mercedes' Hamilton and Ferrari's Vettel led significant portions of the race, as Hamilton's led 47 laps and Vettel led 23. The other occasions were 1987 and 1977.

Like Mercedes, both Red Bull and Ferrari are expected to use new engines, but Red Bull technical boss Adrian Newey downplayed expectations, notably because Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo faces grid penalties for other technical power-unit changes.

Hamilton has 122 career podiums and is second on the all-time list behind Schumacher (155).

Hamilton has had a record 31 successive scoring finishes to date, going back to Malaysia 2016 when he last drew a blank.

The race for the points by Force India's Paul Di Resta and Ferrari's Felipe Massa were undoubtedly one of the highlights of the race.

Haas's Romain Grosjean has yet to open his account for 2018 and including last season the Frenchman has not scored for 10 races in a row.

Since then Hamilton has added five more wins including a hat-trick of Mercedes triumphs in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to move within reach of becoming the first man to secure four straight pole positions - he converted pole in each of those years - and four consecutive wins.

The Briton can also beat the record he now shares with Schumacher of six poles in Montreal.

That voter turnout percentage reported the day after Election Day may be the most misinterpreted statistic in California politics. She said, "Please know, that every day I have been your premier or your MPP, I have worked to think about your needs.

It was also the site of his first Formula 1 win in 2007 and he has dominated in each of the past three years, making him the modern day master of Montreal.

The switch would have delivered a welcome boost thanks to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve being a power-critical track.

But Sky Sports have revealed that the world championship leaders Mercedes have delayed the introduction of their more powerful engine, which would have been a welcome aid at a high-speed circuit like Canada, until the French Grand Prix in mid-June.

An opening lap crash at turn three involving three cars brought out the only safety vehicle of the race, but otherwise, the race was as straightforward a race as it could be for Hamilton and Mercedes.

Stroll earned his first F1 points at the Canadian Grand Prix a year ago.

Vettel can take his 50th win on Sunday.

That means Fernando Alonso could be set for a disappointing 300th F1 Grand Prix weekend though of course, the Spaniard can never be ruled out.
